Club Jade tends to keep it simple when we do piñatas (Death Star, Alderaan) so I can’t help but be charmed by these two far more complicated Star Wars ones – the Millennium Falcon and a TIE fighter – by Etsy seller Antonio Sanchez. (via)

Riptide. Paul S. Kemp broke out another brief excerpt from his Crosscurrent sequel on Friday.
Street date shuffle. It was a slow news week, so Random House moving Denning’s Fate of the Jedi: Vortex up a week got a lot of ink. Still months away, but I did update our book schedule.
Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter (@clubjade) for updates and discussion.

The fandom minute: Defending TPM, subtext, politics, cake, and other things you do under the cover of night

Presented without comment. Karen Miller, whose Star Wars books have been enthusiastically received by certain areas of fandom, wants folks to know that she’s not writing homoerotic subtext into her Clone Wars books. Okay then. (It seems the rant was inspired by this thread. Sigh.)
If we ever see an Essential Guide again… Suggestions for a book on GFFA politics. Dan Wallace is game!

Crafting corner. There are two Mara Jade items in this roundup, and here’s the first one. Rebecca aka Sorakirei, whose first lightsaber scarf we featured earlier in the month, has another made another one. The Mara Jade lightsaber scarf was a commission – could it be from one of our readers? It’s a big internet… She’s also done a ROTJ Luke saber since we last looked…
Action figures: A closer look at Jacen and Jaina.
Lists: Topless Robot has a very Marvel-heavy list of the eleven least necessary Star Wars comics. Yes, its another one of those lists that was probably compiled by hitting the random button on the Wookieepedia, but I’m considering doing a novel version. (Since I’ve actually, like, read a lot of them. Imagine that. The New Rebellion, are your ears stinging yet?)
